The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters

The Little Stranger is set in 1947 Warwickshire, England, and a country doctor is called to Hundreds Hall to treat an ill maid. Dr. Faraday hasn't been to the hall since he was a boy, and his memory of its grandeur clash with the reality of its slow degeneration. Hundreds Hall has been home to the Ayres and the family's fortune has been undone by two world wars. He finds Mrs. Ayres, her son Roderick, who was damaged during the war, and her daughter Caroline residing in a home that is apparently turning malevolent. Dr. Faraday makes constant visits which are not always welcome to understand what's really going on at Hundreds Hall. Sarah Waters' novel has received positive reviews with the Seattle Times saying, "If you want a ghost story that creeps up your spine, The Little Stranger delivers. If you want to get to the heart of the interlocking mystery at the core of this book - well, you'll have to read the whole thing. I would tell you, but something - or someone - is looking over my shoulder."
